Come join Trailkeepers of Oregon as we begin work on the Oregon Coast Trail at Cape Lookout! With your help we’ll be doing brushing and user trail decommissioning on the South Trail.
Plan to hike approximately one mile to the work area and work using loppers and saws. We prioritize safety and fun over quantity of work accomplished and encourage people to try different things and work at a comfortable pace. No experience is necessary — you’ll be working with experienced crew leaders who will teach you all you need to know. We’ll hike down and work in the morning, break for lunch with a view of the cape, and work a bit more in the afternoon before tidying up our work site and hiking back out. We’ll end the day with TKO-provided beverages and salty snacks. We will work in moderate rain, but will cancel or leave if weather becomes unsafe or impedes our ability to do quality work.
What to bring:
• Plenty of water
What to wear:
• Boots (Please wear something sturdy that will protect your toes from sharp tools. No tennis shoes allowed!)
• Work gloves (loaner gloves available)
• Long sleeved shirts and pants.
• Rain gear as appropriate for the weather
• TKO will supply hard hats and safety glasses
Hiking Stats: ~3.5 miles total with 800 feet of elevation gain
Directions: Detailed directions will be provided via email 2 days before the work party.
Crew Leader: Susan Schen
